After appearing at London’s famed Soho bookstore The Society Club this summer, Montreal’s JF Robitaille has been invited for a return reading and performance on September 21 for the store’s annual celebration of Leonard Cohen’s birthday. Robitaille has often been compared to Leonard but as Der Speigel Magazine in Germany once pointed out “…we see that this young bard has been compared to Mr. Cohen…but his songs and lyrics are so original that no comparisons are necessary!”
From London he will travel to Italy to play a dozen or so club dates from September 23 to October 8th. For a complete list of shows, visit www.jfrobitaille.com
Meanwhile in Montreal the video for his single “Marina” has just been added to heavy rotation on MusiquePlus and Max. The song is from his new album “Palace Blues” which is accompanied by a book of lyrics and poetry entitled “Minor Dedications”.
Upcoming shows in Quebec upon his return from Europe will be announced soon!

Below a review/preview from David Farrell, posted on FYI Music News yesterday.
Brad Fillatre releases his sophomore album Strangers on Sparks Music tomorrow. The singer/songwriter showcased its eloquent material at The Dakota in T.O. last night. There’s a country-folk accent to his sound, though one impressive number he termed “dark and psychedelic” suggests that exploring this realm would pay dividends. The album certainly merits investigation. By day, Fillatre runs the Gibson Guitars showroom.
You can now pre-order “Strangers’, the upcoming new album from Brad Fillatre directly from our Bandcamp store and receive an instant digital download of the first two singles as well as Brad Fillatre’s previous release, the critically acclaimed “For Your Weakness” EP.
